Paige + Billy had a glammed out winter wedding that was absolutely gorgeous! Paige styled every aspect of their wedding day perfectly. The bridesmaid dresses even came from England! From the blush tones to the fur wraps to her amazing Lazaro wedding gown she was able to seamlessly incorporate pieces of her own style into their wedding day in the most elegant ways. When I say this wedding felt like it was out of a fairy tale, I'm not joking!
This was a really fun wedding for me personally because I've known both Paige + Billy since I was a kid. I knew them seperately, and I don't think either one put together that the other already knew me until they decided to hire us to photograph their wedding.
I think I've known Billy since I was 4 or 5. Growing up, my mom ran a daycare that Billy and his sister, Katie, came to before and after school. We pretty much played non-stop. Our days were filled with dodge ball, kickball, 500, and jailbreak. It was so much fun!
I met Paige when I was about 7 through ballet - which in all honesty, I'm not really sure why I did took classes for so long because I was awful! But, I remember Paige and her matron of honor, Meghan, being the best of friends even way back then.
That's what made this wedding day so special for me. I get a little emotional on every wedding day, but it made me so genuinely happy to see these two people from my childhood find their happily ever after in each other. The way Billy looks at Paige really says it all.
Their ceremony was filled with stories about how their love came to be and what brought them to this monumental moment. Once Billy + Paige were officially pronounced husband and wife, we headed the the Branch Museum for their reception. This venue definitely has a castle like feel to it, and that combined with Paige's gorgeous gown, her handsome groom, and the darkness of night really gave their wedding photos a fairytale feel.
Paige + Billy's guests knew how to party! The dance floor was packed the entire night, and the evening ended with a sparkler send-off! It was such a perfect day! Congratulations to the new Mr. + Mrs. Yuhase!
Just a little shoutout to all the rockstar vendors involved in their wedding day!!
